After arriving in Memphis for a commencement address, President Obama dropped his BlackBerry. Luckily, he had a case for it, and it seems that no damage was done. You can see the device falling in the first image, hitting the ground on the second and Obama picking it up in the third.
This is why it’s important to put a case on your smartphone, especially with devices like the iPhone or other handsets with a glass touchscreen. Had this been an iPhone without a case, it would have been shattered. It’s always better to be able to pick up your device and dust it off as you pick it up, undamaged.
